Why Eating Together Matters

May 9, 2017

When one of those who sat at table with him heard this, he said to him,
“Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!”

-Luke 14:15


Eating together as a family isn’t just important; it’s necessary!

We live in a culture with a fast food mentality. We have come to believe that a perfect family can come together in a microwavable minute. Instead, we have to remember that God uses a crockpot, and that takes time.

The foundation of the family is built on the foundation of the table. It is where families grow in trust, communication and love for one another. You prove that love for your kids at the table by spending time with them.

So cook good food, your kids will come and you will learn why Jesus became food in the first place.


O Lord, we thank you for the gifts of your bounty which we enjoy at our table. As you have provided for us in the past, so may you sustain us throughout our lives. While we enjoy your gifts, may we never forget the needy and those in want.
